National Association of Polytechnic Students (NAPS) on Monday blocked the gate of the Federal Ministry of Education, Abuja, preventing vehicles from moving in and out of the premises to protest the over eight months strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP).

The students, who said the demonstration was the beginning of a massive protest by all polytechnic students and students of allied institutions that award Ordinary National Diploma (OND) and Higher National Diploma (HND) certificates, insisted that they will remain on the street until the Federal Government meets the demand of polytechnic lecturers and the strike is called off.
